I would share them with my fantastic neighbors, make a cherry pie (or three), and give a bunch to my sis-in-law (best cook/baker in the world) and she can make jam. Yummers!

What would we do with a case of cherries? A LOT!!! We would eat them and we would make some cherry jelly to can and some cherry salsa so that we could enjoy them for some time.

My husband & I love to can. We would like to make Cherry Almond Jam, Brandied Cherries,Sweet Cherry Vinegar & possibly a nice Cherry Cobbler. And of course, we would savor them fresh as we lovingly preserve the rest to be enjoyed at another time!

If I had a case of cherries - Id just eat them as is. They taste the best just how they are naturally. Plus Id make cherry preserves, turnovers, cheesecake topping, chutney, smoothies, yogurt, ice cream...ahhh love cherries!!! Its so versatile! Having a cherry pit spitting contest at picnics is so much fun, everyone gets involved with that event. The winner gets a basket of cherries.

I would make fruit leather with a few pounds in the dehydrator, cherry perseves with a few more pounds to share with friends and family, cheery ice cream, and let my 4 year old devour a big bowl of the rest. Although he would prob eat all 10 pounds if I let him.

A good portion of them would probably be eaten as nature made them, the rest would most likely be made into: 1: Jam 2: Dried 3: Cherry/chocolate ice cream or yogurt-I love the combination! 4: Any leftovers would be frozen.

YUM!!! A whole case? WOW, I could make all kinds of yummy goodies for myself--let's see, there's cherry pie, cherry cobbler, then there's cherry bbq "chicken" (I'm a vegetarian), and always lots of fresh cherries to snack on!!

Yummy, I would make vegan dark chocolate cherry muffins for breakfast. Have them just like nature intended for a snack. Lunch would be a huge bowl of salad with a homemade cherry vinegarette. Then for dinner I'd have stir-fried tofu with a cherry sauce on top. Then to top of my "cherry" day I would make a dairy free cherry coconut milk ice cream. P.S. hmmmm Cherry Martini anyone?? ;)

I would eat them, cook with them, freeze them, as well as donate some to my daughter's ballet school and to our local soup kitchen, Miriam's Kitchen in DC. The chef there tries to make sure the homeless get fed quality meals 3x/day.

My 14 month old son and I would eat them, just as they are, as quickly as possible. We love cherries.

I've been thinking about how fun it would be to make my own organic ice cream, and a bunch of fresh cherries would really top it off! Also, a big bowl of cherries always gives a summery touch to the table. :)

I grew having to pluck, pit, poach, and pulverize bushels of cherries that grew on the prolific tree in my family's Illinois backyard. We had "pitting parties" (quite opposed to pity parties) where the neighborhood's 43 kids would sit around on old sheets shooting the breeze while preparing the cherries for their next incarnation be it pie, buckle, cobbler, cake, canned sauces or my dad's infamous cherry wine. I have an idea or two of what I'd do with another windfall bumper crop of cherries! Let the creative juices (pun on purpose) flow and have a pitting party!

I make jam - LOTS and LOTS of jam! In fact, I've spent this long holiday weekend making jam. So far, I've got strawberry, blackberry, blackberry sage, blackberry vanilla, gingered peach and stone fruit melange (a mixture of apricots, nectarines and plums.) I have about 20 lbs of peaches yet to go! But by far, one of my favorites to make (and eat AND share!) is spiced cherry. It has cinnamon, cloves and almond and is so delicious! All my friends and family keep asking for more! So, with a case of cherries, you can bet I'd get my canner boiling - of course, actual results may vary since it's darn near impossible to keep my husband from eating them all first :)

Cherry pie, cherry muffins, cherry ice cream, Cherries Jubilee, duck with cherries, cherry chutney, cherries as they come! Clearly I'd also need to get a cherry pitter.

I would be in cherry heaven with a whole case! I would pit and flash freeze the whole case, and have a ready supply for pies, cobblers, sangria, etc. My favorite way to eat cherries are frozen....they are perfect bite size popsicles! MMMM!!

I would start by finding recipes I could make using raw cherries. I have a nice tart recipe. And since I don't eat sugar I would make cherry preserves and give some to my friends and donate some to local organizations.Mount Airy has a homeless shelter called the Shepard's House.I am going to donate some eggs soon. I always like to share God's gifts with others.

Cherry preserves and cherry cheesecake are the first things that come to mind. Wow, now I'm hungry!

I would sing a cherry song, take beautiful cherry pictures, get out some water color paper and make some cherry art using juice from the prize winning cherries...then I would search out exotic recipes with cherry's as the main ingredient and contemplate which would be the most healthy and delicious, all the while gorging on them with my Son and having a pit spitting contest to see who could spit their pit the farthest....yup...that's what I would do.

I'd give half to my mom, who LOVES cherries (trust me, 5 lbs would not be a challenge for her). With the rest I'd make delicious cherry chocolate chip ice cream (soy or coconut milk), using agave and Sunspire's grain-sweetened chocolate chips. And maybe a great cherry cheesecake with Tofutti Cream Cheese and Sour Cream. No dairy. No refined sugar. Lots of YUMMM!

I would be thrilled - I'd eat some straight from the case, make cherry pie, a cherry tart, throw them in green salads, make some cherry ice-cream with dark chocolate chunks, and mix them in greek yogurt! Yummmmm.
